Finding a decent rental can be a minefield of the good, the bad, and the downright ugly. As an expat in L.A., I know all too well the challenges renters face in tracking down a pretty property that’s close to a grocery store and great restaurants, isn’t run down, has a trustworthy landlord, is located in a safe neighborhood, and that doesn’t cost you more than 30% of your gross monthly income—because most of us are seriously overspending on rent. Craigslist is a great place to find one; it's also where I buy all my affordable furniture and where we found our magical Los Angeles apartment. You just need to learn how to navigate the clutter. Scroll down for a few of our best tips for finding the rental of your dreams on Craigslist.
